Weds 12 Sept

Visit to Dungy at midday, a bit cooler and a bit cloudier, with a stronger breeze -is Autumn coming? - A short walk to Firth hide brought the highlight of the day, a Pectoral Sandpiper, close views were had by many, giving plenty of opportunities for photos. A very striking bird expecially when the sun came out and showed its plumage to its full glory.
Other birds around included a chiffchaff, 2 kestrels, 2 marsh harriers, numerous yellow wagtails, a few wheatear, 100+ sandmartins and all the usual suspects.
Over to the ARC producing 3 female pintails, only 1 golden plover, no sign of the recently showing little stints though but there was another highlight of the day, a spotted flycatcher feeding relatively close giving 20 mins of good views.
Total count for the day - a nice round 50
